It’s nearly panto time again folks! Oh yes it is! This year we’re staging Sleeping Beauty and the title role will be played by the beautiful Lindsay Harding.

Returning to the Belgrade to play the Dame, Nanny Knot, will be Coventry panto legend Iain Lauchlan who has also written and directed the show. Joining him will be the Olivier award-winning RSC actress Katy Stephens, who has played Principal boy in many of the Belgrade’s previous pantomimes. most recently in 2005 when she played Jack in Jack and the Beanstalk. This year she’s taking on the role of the Evil Fairy Carabosse.

No pantomime is complete without some fairy magic and Hollie Anne Cartwright will be stepping into the shoes of Azuriel the Good Fairy to save Belle from a terrible fate. Every princess needs a prince, and ours willl be played by Morna MacPherson and Muddles, played by Craig Hollingsworth will have you falling off your seat with laughter!

To complete the line-up, Lee Samuel will be taking on the role of Gob, with John Webb as the King and Elizabeth Jelley and Stuart Gannon as the ensemble parts.
